Lull yourself to sleep with the sounds of the ocean and wake up with the distant whistle of the Block Island Ferry. The Waters Edge Cottage by the Sea is nestled in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Narragansett. Located one block from a rocky ocean entryway, and the best surf break in Rhode Island, this sparkling clean home gives you access to the all the best activities Rhode Island has to offer.
The Cottage has all new appliances, new bathroom, refreshing outdoor shower, and is sparkling clean and comfortable. With a large deck and cute New England yard, sip coffee while listening to the waves or gaze at the massive amounts of stars while enjoying a cocktail at night. For a night off, there are three flat screen televisions with cable, one in each bedroom and one with a large lounging couch so the family can watch a movie together.
The home is located within walking distance to the stunning lighthouse and some of Narragansett's best coastlines, restaurants, and pubs including Spain Restaurant, Chair Five, Famous Aunt Carrie's (for ice cream and New England fare - Yum!), and Charlie O's Tavern.
Also, check out Camp Cronin Beach, an eight minute walk, for fishing, swimming (no lifeguard or facilities), and some of the most spectacular views of the ocean that you will ever see.
A quick run or bike brings you to either Sand Hill Cove Beach (great for young children) or Scarborough Beach, a two minute car ride from the home; both with lifeguards, bathrooms, and snack bars...or pop open a beach chair at the break, one block from the house where you can watch the sun rise, wade in the water to look for seashells, and maybe see some ocean animals.
Whale watching, a trip on the Block Island Ferry, or deep sea fishing is only five minutes away. A twenty minute car ride brings you to world famous Newport for shopping, dining, and yachting.
Start you New England beach tradition today with The Waters Edge Cottage by the Sea.
My family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation in this adorable cottage. There was plenty of room for all 5 children and their "stuff". After dinner, we would walk down to the ocean, and the children could even ride their bikes if they preferred. We loved the sound of the lighthouse horn blowing as we had our tea on the front lawn. As a runner, I was able to run to the lighthouse in the morning before heading out for the day with the family The whole family enjoyed walking up to Aunt Carrie's or Iggy's for some ice cream after our busy day at the ocean Additionally, the manager of the property was very easy to deal with, which made our trip carefree!! This family will be sure to return!!
Nice place! Just a few caveats
We had a very nice, relaxing week at this cottage. It was a bit pricy for no real sea view, but clean, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen and bath were modern, and it's a block to the shore and a 2 minute ride to Iggy's, the lighthouse, or Sand Hill Cove, where you can swing on the swings and watch the sun set in the sea. Or drive a few more minutes to Narragansett, and don't forget to stop at Brickley's for ice cream in handmade cones!
A couple of things: the Internet worked fine but the TV never worked. The owner claimed (when we called to inquire) that you could hear the surf from the sleeping porch, but for us anyway, it was barely audible. There's A/C window units, and you will need them - the house gets warm, even with the central fan running. We liked the owners, a young family who live right next door - but after we returned home, it took 6 weeks and repeated contact to get our security deposit refunded. The owner apologized and offered to let us stay in future without a deposit, so perhaps this was a one-time slipup, but FYI.
Narragansett Rhode Island is known for its casual elegance and stunning coastal beauty. Encompassing the entire southeast corner of Rhode Island, Narragansett is rich with wildlife and gives our visitors access to both the Atlantic Ocean on the east side and the Block Island/Long Island Sound on the south side. There is also the Narrow River and many estuaries and ponds that provide a plethora of wildlife and water activities.
